Thanks! I suspect Covid because the symptoms seem more like it than anything else I've experienced.

I think you are right from what I have read and heard elsewhere.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

Thanks! I'm actually feeling better, atm. We're going to order test kits tomorrow. I really need to make certain of my situation, both for life threat to myself, and to others. It seems that a huge portion of the US population doesn't.  :???:

Glad to hear it's going OK, man.   :thumb: :spock:

I am doing OK. Got the call this morning, MiL finally punched out. We just got back home. She was scheduled to go back into hospice care, but wasn't in the system yet, so the care facility had to call 911. In hospice care, it's over when it's over. So, this way it was red lights and sirens, police all over the place, yada yada. All handled. The police were surprised that we weren't more upset. I explained that she'd had a stroke two years previous, paralyzed on the right side. We were told she wouldn't last more than a few days back then, so it wasn't in the least unexpected. Truly, with Alzheimer's, she was already gone. My wife works well when the crisis is on. She's going to melt down pretty soon, though.

My sympathies. It is always sad, even if expected. I hope your wife is coping OK.

Thanks! She's OK so far, but there is going to be upset downstream. I'll just hold her while she cries, same as when my parents died, and she held me.

That's a sweet thing to say, Dark Lightning. I'm sorry for your loss.

Sorry for your loss. But as you say she'd gone a while ago.:(

Please accept my condolences DL, and especially for Ms. DL.   lost my own mother to Alsheimer's many years ago.  Not an easy way to go and certainly a crushing long term event for the family.
